Gold jewellery has been one of the most popular accessories for centuries and has the ability to transform an average fit into a completely stunning look. Gold rings, chains and even diamond earrings have been beautifully styled by both men and women with a range of different outfits. We understand though, that when you have such a large collection of gold jewellery it can be difficult to match these pieces up with one another.

In this blog, we’re going to give you some of our best gold styling tips to ensure you can get the most out of your gold jewellery collection. 

How To Style Gold Chains

There are a few different ways you can style your gold chain, whether it’s your first gold jewellery piece or if you’re looking to reinvent a personal classic. Whether you’re wearing it casually for a day out, to a social event or as part of your workwear, these tips can keep you looking fresh.

Less is more

As minimalistic jewellery styles are becoming more popular, one of the best ways you can style your gold chain is by itself. If you opt for a heavy gold chain or an iced out chain, wearing it acapella lets your statement piece do all the talking. Plus, you can risk easily overcrowding your accessories by pairing a chunky chain with other necklaces.

Mix & match

For medium thickness chains, layering them with slightly thinner chains and necklaces can add depth to your look. A thinner chain can complement a thicker one nicely, especially if you begin to experiment with yellow, white and rose golds. 

Add a pendant

If your chain is suitable to be used with a pendant, adding one on can help reinvent your piece. Whether it’s a chain you’ve had for a while or a new one which you’d like to accessorise with, exploring the idea of introducing a pendant can help your style achieve a new dynamic.

Mixing Your Coloured Gold Jewellery

As there are various different colours of gold jewellery, such as yellow gold, white gold and rose gold, you may find yourself wanting to wear them all at once. Whilst this can look amazing when done right, you want to make sure that you’re making the right style choices.

Yellow gold is an absolute classic look and works great when worn with other similarly coloured pieces, however, if you want to introduce another colour of gold into the mix, we’d recommend going for white gold. As this is a very neutral colour, it works well at contrasting the brightness of yellow, ensuring a more mellow look than anything that’s too over the top.

Similarly, styling rose gold with white gold can work for a truly elegant look. The subtleness of each colour works well together to create a style which exudes class. Whilst they can be worn with yellow gold, it’s important to make sure that the pieces don’t clash, so opting for rose gold earrings and yellow gold rings, for example, can work well as they’re not too closely positioned.

Layering Gold Earrings

Earrings are the perfect way to add the finishing touch to an outfit. They work well as a classy yet casual piece of jewellery as well as an eye-catching accessory that can accentuate the face and its features. Here are some of the most popular styles of earrings which we stock and how best to wear them.

Hoop earrings

Hoop earrings are perfect for those who have an oval face shape, meaning you can get truly creative with different colours and they’ll still look great! When looking to wear hoop earrings with other pieces of jewellery, the key is not to go overboard. We’d recommend a thin necklace with a small pair of hoop earrings for a stylish yet elegant look.

Stud earrings

The beauty of stud earrings truly is their versatility. As they’re compact and typically occupy only a small space on the ear, they can be styled with other pieces of jewellery both small and large. For women, stud earrings are the perfect choice for a wedding day to be worn with a dress, whilst for men, stud earrings can help elevate your favourite party fit.

At Hatton Jewellers we also stock different varieties of diamond stud earrings, including styles which feature different gemstones, such as emeralds.

Drop earrings

Drop earrings are a great choice for those who have rounder faces, as the elongated style can help to create a very flattering look. Whether worn with a dress or a t-shirt and jeans, drop earrings are the perfect accessory for wear all year round.

How To Wear Gold Jewellery With Different Outfits

The first question to ask yourself when styling jewellery with different outfits is what impact do you want to make? This should help you choose pieces which are suitable for workwear and which pieces will help you stand out from the crowd at social gatherings. Similarly, with a casual look, this will help you gauge the kind of outfit you want to create, opting for truly dazzling or stylishly subtle.

For women, a lighter chain or necklace with a dress or shirt is a great look for a work environment as it adds a classy finishing touch to a professional outfit. When heading out for the evening, hoop earrings and gold bangles are a great way of accessorising in a more extravagant way that allows you to get more creative after hours.

For men, adopting the same technique and opting for a thinner chain when heading to work is a smart move. This can look great with a smart jumper or a clean shirt with the first few buttons left open. When attending social events, a bolder chain paired with matching rings is a great look, especially if you opt for a plain t-shirt and jeans.
